What are these?

Hope you all had a good Christmas. I got a DA for Xmas (didn’t hint too much), but before I use it can anyone tell me what these marks are? (they were there when I got the car). Dragons Breath hasn’t touched it and I was going to use Iron X but don’t want to waste either products.

It looks like tree sap but is hard as glue and they are over parts of the car.

Have you tried a dedicated tar and glue remover, something like AS Tardis?

That looks like a dodgy touchup

I would try removing a small area with a de-nibber, but as bigalc says it could be touch-up paint.

99% that's a touch up but a better picture would help to be 100% sure.

Garage
Could be touch up, could also be pine resin if the car has sat underneath certain types of tree. As others have said, some more / better pics would be needed to say for sure.

I’d say tree sap, try picking a piece off and smelling it, then you’ll know.
And a really easy way to remove it is with either a tar and glue remover or Autoglym interior cleaner, the active ingredient dissolves sap very well

What are these?

Thanks all. I will try tardis.
It’s not touchup as the car is silver but this stuff is tree sap colour.

Ah, that's a much clearer photo. You can clearly see that it's not a touch up, which is good news for you
